Selective Vulnerability of Cortical Border Zone to Microembolic Infarct.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular procedures, including atrial fibrillation transcatheter ablation, may cause microembolization of brain arteries. Microemboli often cause small sized and clinically silent cerebral ischemias (SCI). These lesions are clearly visible on early postoperative magnetic resonance diffusion-weighted images. We analyzed SCI… (More)
